About the Book.
Acclaimed and award-winning picture book creator Carin Berger’s beautiful and timely picture book, All of Us, celebrates the power of community, family, and most of all, love. Her beautiful collage art and lyrical text offer a message of hope in the face of adversity. All of Us is ideal for family sharing as well as year-round giving. With a universal message and stunning paper collage art, this striking book is just right for fans of Matt de la Peña’s Love and Emily Winfield Martin’s The Wonderful Things You Will Be.


“A delightful meditation of love and community. The prose reads like a song, and the story is simple and universal. …Useful as a soothing bedtime story or as a short read-aloud. Perfect for sharing on Valentine’s Day and every day.”

 -School Library Journal


“Parents and their little ones will love this disarmingly simple poem about the power of love and community to vanquish fear and darkness. …Berger’s message is gorgeously emphasized by collage illustrations that capture the essence of the words.”

“Berger populates this buoying book with people of all hues, genders, and love configurations. …An earnest, moving expression of what the world needs now—and what children have always needed: love, sweet love.”

-Kirkus Reviews
